"Slithering", the brand new video from Portuguese extreme progressive metallers Malevolence, is premiering exclusively through PureGrainAudio in Canada! It was directed by David Barros of 4TheRecords. "Slithering", written by guitarist and vocalist Carlos Cariano, is taken from the band’s upcoming third album Antithetical, which will be released in 2013. Carlos commented about the new video: "'Slithering' was the first single extracted from our impending new album. Deciebl Magazine kindly assisted us to make the premiere of the audio episode some weeks ago, helping us in the process to show the song writing diversity on Antithetical. Now we are moving forward and presenting the visual production of our first (ever) music video interrelated with the same song. To achieve that we worked with 4TheRecords, a young company producing mainly short films and commercials. "Slithering" is their boldest achievement to date and we are truly pleased with the visual quality of our first cooperation with this entity. The support of 4TheRecords was central and decisive to attain the professional final results."
